Thanks for checking out our site! We hope you stick around and join the adventure. Click play on our video below to learn more about us and how we got inspired to become a full-time RVing family. Continue to read below for even more info.
We have been a full-time RVing family for multiple years now and boy have we learned and experienced so much! At the end of February 2018, we moved the last of our things into our RV and once again became a full-time RVing family. I say once again because Kevin and I had done 6 months on our own before kids back in 2013 when we took a brief sabbatical from the working world during our move from Northern Virginia to Denver, CO. It was a wonderful time exploring our amazing country and having so many fun adventures together. We thought that would be an epic trip to store in our memories to possibly be revived in retirement. We expected we’d settle down in Denver and stay there for the long haul.
And as much as we loved the people we met and the time we spent there, we felt a little itch, then a little nudge…
Getting on the Road
And soon we were dreaming of another RVing journey, this time with kids and a dog in tow. As we dreamed we researched and discovered just how many families full-time RV with children, all while continuing to work. We asked why not us too?
It took a few years as we moved into a smaller apartment to begin downsizing and working on building our own business. We had our second child. We bought our fifth wheel and truck. And then the final push to sell or donate everything we didn’t need, move into our rig, and hit the road.
We’re very grateful to have the opportunity to do this. We feel like God put this desire back on our hearts and helped pave the way. Some days are more stressful than others and we still experience life in all its day to day forms, but the time we are getting to spend with our kids as they grow, and the quality family time and memories we’re building are what motivate us to continue this lifestyle as long as we are able.
I am the main author on this blog. I enjoy writing and telling our story either through words or film. I’m learning more and more about blogging, vlogging, and websites to continue to share our adventures. I do most of the homeschooling of our children. I’m working on being more disciplined and intentional with my time and goals so that we can balance family time, work, exploration, and all the other tasks of RV life and demands of life as best we can! I enjoy reading, cooking, hiking, climbing, biking, caving, and planning our travels and outings.
I worked remotely in a corporate role initially as we moved into our RV and for several years which supported our travels. In April 2021, we took the leap of me resigning from my job so we could pursue our dreams of even more freedom and building our own income from our video creation and travel writing. We work from our RV office as we build our business while living the RVing lifestyle.
I love sitting in front of the campfire with my husband and looking up at the stars. I’m so grateful for this opportunity and all the time I have to see my kids grow up, playing with them, and snuggling them. I love Jesus and raising my children to know Him is one of my ultimate goals. I post even more about our adventures on Instagram @_neverstopadventuring and Facebook @officialneverstopadventuring
Kevin was the biggest dreamer when it came to getting in the RV again. His excitement and daring to consider the possibilities was infectious. Kevin did all the leg work in getting our awesome truck and fifth wheel and does all the heavy lifting and technical work of moving and setting up the RV including the route planning. He does the larger percentage of our filming for our vlogs and as a licensed drone pilot is also able to take stunning drone videos and photography. Though I originally did all of the editing for our YouTube vlogs, Kevin was a quick learner and has now taken over this role to free up more of my time for other tasks.
Kevin has been a super supportive husband and amazing dad and he builds strong lasting bonds with his children as he cares for them and helps tag-team homeschooling them when I am working. He is kind, funny, loves tinkering with and riding the electric bikes he built for us so we can tow the kids long distances, checking out new breweries, geeking out over financial independence and early retirement strategy, hiking, rock climbing and caving.
Klara is always up for an adventure or a trip to a local playground or library. After a few weeks following our launch she settled right into our new lifestyle, as long as we confirmed that the truck would indeed be pulling the RV to our new campground. She has enjoyed meeting new kids, visiting long-time friends again during our travels, and video chatting with those currently far away. Homeschool on the road has been a hit with her and she has been learning via “roadschooling” since preschool, kindergarten and now 1st grade! We plan to continue homeschooling and learning through things she is able to see and experience as we travel.
Our little man is such a busy little guy. He is always on the go. Like his sister he loves being outside and playing. He is full of smiles and adores his sister. We were amazed how easy it was to start RVing with him when he was still a baby (only 8 months old when we moved into the RV!) and he has been a great traveler ever since. We learned so much about RVing with a baby and young kids in general during this time. Now as he’s grown, he’s learning right along with his sister and loving this lifestyle!
Our almost middle-aged lab boxer mix is a rescue dog that still acts like a puppy. We all know labs have energy for days, and I also read somewhere that boxers are the Peter Pan of dogs, as in they never grow up! We can hardly keep up with her some days! Maggie is a great family dog, sweet with the kids, and loves riding in the truck which makes moving days much easier than they might otherwise be!
Here Are Some Fun Facts About Us
- We met while caving! We went to vertical training practice for our local caving club on the cliffs of Great Falls, MD above the Potomac River and didn’t have the greatest first impression of each other actually, for whatever reason! But how can you resist someone covered from head to toe in mud and crawling through tight cave passageways?! The rest is history!
- Christine grew up as an Army brat. Her dad was in the military and she spent a good portion of her life in Germany, where she still has family!
- When we first met, Kevin wasn’t sure if he wanted to travel extensively or even move away from the DC area!
- Kevin used to homebrew some amazing beer. If only we could figure out how to do that from the RV…hmmm…..
- We like to rock climb, but are biding our time as the kids get older. They’ve done a little bit of climbing with us but we look forward to doing more.
- We plan to do quite a bit of international travel and some international RVing in the future!! We’re super excited about that possiblity.
